NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Thousands of people filled 5th Avenue South, alongside Music City Center, for the culmination of a two-day celebration to mark the opening of the new convention center.

Every floor of the new building had visitors looking around, getting a sense for why there has been so much hype about the project over the last three years.

"It's a wonderful view, you get to see everything. It looks like everybody's having a great time and enjoying Nashville." said Terry Blackman Jr.

Outside the convention center, there was a party atmosphere as people listened to free concerts on 5th Avenue North.

More than 20 food trucks lined Demonbreun Street and several bars were set up around Music City Center, adding to that party vibe.

Everyone wanted to come out and mark this important day in the history of Nashville.

"I think it's a great time for what I think is going to be a really important to Nashville and that is bringing the type of convention business here that we haven't even begun to imagine." said Holly Walsh.

The music continued through the night with the Fisk Jubilee Singers, The Time Jumpers featuring Vince Gill, Mikky Ekko and headlining act Sheryl Crow.

The night ended with a fireworks display from behind the stage on Korean Veteran Boulevard. Crews also shot off fireworks from atop the Music City Center roof.
